OK I don’t have a TV or radio at the moment for various reason and I use the web radio stations for news and music ect
Now I go to a Fox radio station that does simulcasts on the web and has the dodger games
Come to find out there blacked out on the web … you get a message that says “due to the broadcast rules of mlb this live audio fee is blacked out go to mlb.com to hear the live game”
Now I go to the website and click on the live games and i get sent to a page that informs me for fucking 14.95 a season I can listen to the games on the web
What the fuck? I get to pay for what others get free? What’s fucking wrong with running lousy commercials for farmer John mystery meat products and dodger dogs like the radio and TV stations do?
To me this would be like NBC running say their prime time schedule and charging 14.95 a week
Is mlb being the chintzy ass greedy fucks that we know and love as usual or am I being a cheap bastard?
Note even if the radio games are normally blacked out when the dodgers are in la paying 14.95 for them would still piss me off
